  • Dr Marcus J. Coffey

    I teach the subject of Pharmacology to our Medical and BSc students at Cardiff University School of Medicine.

    Pharmacology is the study of how drugs work in the human body. Although we only ever want drugs to have a therapeutic effect we also have to recognise that some drugs can cause side effects in patients. So, the more we understand about the composition of drugs and how they have their effects; the safer prescribing medicines becomes.

    To fully understand the actions of drugs in the body I teach our students everything from physiology to chemistry to quantum physics.

    I use interactive computer animations to help explain scientific processes plus I give our students hands-on practical experiences of using drugs in clinical scenarios (they get to experiment on each other!)
